Help me name our kitten!

DP and I are getting a new kitten. He is squishy and white and fluffy. He's a confident little scamp too smile

His mum was a stray who was being fed by some students, until a couple of months back when she ran in their house and gave birth on one of their beds! The students then called the animal shelter I volunteer at - and the story has a nice ending because all five kittens now have homes (two in pairs then mine) and one of the students has adopted mum.

Anyway, we can't decide on a name and I'm feeling very uninspired so thought I might get a little help here? smile. I know pet naming challenges usually go down well grin DP likes Ollie, and I do too, but I know too many DC called Oliver smile I don't want to offend any friends by giving my kitten the same name as their DS!

So if you have any ideas, let me know please...!

Olaf is cute.

We already have a girlcat - she has an old lady name. I don't care about sticking to oldie names though smile

Strophe, if he makes everywhere a mess

Pult, if he jumps everywhere



Monty, short for Mont Blanc


What was the name of the white cat in the bond films?
